Monday monday ~


Happy Monday afternoon my friends ~
I am hoping that you are enjoying a bit of the cooler weather that we've been having here in the south ~
although, Mizz Flea says we will get hot again tomorrow...
I'd rather it didn't!

and let's keep those folks in CA in our prayers ~ those wildfires are nasty!
scares me to death...

while watching the news, and movies, and youtube, and browsing Pinterest...
i've been working on the designs below:

almost finished with these ~
 the square 2 will become new patterns for our pin keep bases, as mentioned in an earlier post,
and the other 2 I have no clue as to what they'll end up being!
ever done that?
just start working on something with no real plan as how to finish?
to be honest, I just drew them up on the weavers cloth because I had room for 'something' else and hate to waste an inch of anything :)

I did finish another little pendant too, and will offer this one on Ebay this evening ~
the little W I T C H pendant on Ebay at the moment is ending in 2 days, 
....so I wanted to put another up before it ends ~

bittersweet & key pendant
 I love choosing just the right little button, buckle or finding for my things ~
I have a nice collection of junk and love to root through & dump out my many (many) jars of stuff.


I have jars that hold bone buttons, white buttons, black buttons, brown buttons ~
rusty pins, rusty bells, rusty wire...
jars full of thread spools, empty spools and just thread.
I love apothecary jars and have them filled with wool, string and old millinery flowers...
and I like to keep them out where I can see them:


a corner in my sewing room ~

Thanks so much to everyone for their kind words regarding my book coming out ~
and to those...who have pre ordered.

 I will leave the link up on my sidebar for easy ordering for you ~
remember, if you'd like your copy signed/personalized, 
I'm happy to ~ just let me know you do :)

Have a beautiful & quiet (of what remains) Monday friends ~

Wonderful your Witch pendant I like so much punch needle but I never try to make it... Your sewing room is just a perfect place to stitch create and sew !

what sweet inspiration your sewing room is...and just when I was certainly ready to sell my punching tools you have to make these perfect little pieces...
